Chants and Mantras
Chanting has been practiced in many religious traditions from time immemorial to bring the sacred into our lives. In the science of yoga it features prominently the discipline of 'Bhakti yoga', or the yoga of love and devotion, where mantras comprised of ancient sounds are effectively used to bring about spiritual awakening and expansion of awareness.
Sri Vasudeva teaches us that "chanting is a wonderful way of awakening energies, through song, music and rhythm. The sanscrit language is said to be the language of the Gods. The different sounds of the sanscrit alphabet is said to be connected to different chakras, so when you repeat mantras it has a very profound influence on your being."
